Union minister Harsimrat Badal slammed her Devar former fianance Minister and Akali turned Congress Leader Manpreet Badal who is has been cleared from Bathinda urban seat by the central election committee of the Congress headed by party president Sonia Gandhi.The Congress strategy is not just high on symbolism, of pitching a Badal in the parliamentary constituency of CM’s daughter-in-law and Union minister Harsimrat Badal to contain the ruling clan in Bathinda, but also to gain from the division of Hindu votes in the seat between the Akali Dal and the AAP. The fact that Manpreet had a lead of 30,000 votes from Bathinda urban when he lost to Harsimrat in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls has not gone unnoticed in the calculations.
